hey guys, i forgot i was registered here. i am the one doing the outdrives for BX. He is being completely honest...he is just really excited about promoting the pro4. His sets should be done this week and possibly even shipped to him this week. it is 31 bucks for a full set shipped and these will still let you use the d-ring style diff rings, so no other parts are needed, just replace your existing. I will get you guys some pics as soon as they are done and i will try to post some models of the parts tomorrow.

Mega BUMP!

Its nice to see the Pro 4 thread still going (sort of, just found it on the second page)

Im still happily running my Pro 4 in modified, running an Orion V2 12x2, Novak GTX, Futaba 3pk with HRS reciever and Futaba S9550 servo. Last weekend I got a 4th, 6th, 3rd. Not bad considering I dusted the ol' pro 4 off a week ago after a year of not racing (School takes up all my RC time )

So im just checking in, great to see some people still run this chassis and I hope they will for a while still!

Long live the pro 4

Heres a pic of mine right now:

Hey bxpitbull; Tamiya parts are very hard to get. I`ve always had a Tamiya Kit so I`m somewhat used to ordering parts Long-Distance.
Since I`ve had My Pro 4; I`ve had no problems getting parts for it. That`s 1 good thing about HPI.

I`ve recieved My TB Evo 5 last week(built it) and it`s a Nice Kit. It`s somewhat easier to build than the Pro 4.
-The TB Evo 5 come with a Aluminum Motor Heat-Sink. The Pro 4 can really use a Motor Heat-Sink.
-The TB Evo 5 has better Diff access. Diff checks bother me on the Pro 4.....Ha Ha!
-It comes with Wheels and a Pinion.

I haven`t ran it yet; but when I do I`ll tell you.(I`m using a 19-Turn Motor.)

Take Care.

Hmmm, i was wondering how they stayed in, didnt realise they were screwed to the chassis or that you had to drill into the chassis.

Still after the weekend i used tape for the first time on my pro 4 and the first 2 runs i had the tape tear off and new IB4200 WCs scratched

I used to have ball cups on the outside of the chassis where there are two holes used for mounting the holder for stick packs but with the larger size of the new batteries i had to take them off and revert to tape

Default Pro 4 vs. TB Evo 5

Hey Pro 4 Guys; I think I`ve found a Shaft Drive Kit/Car that runs somewhat better than the Pro 4. . . . .The Tamiya TB Evo 5.

I`ve had the chance to give the TB Evo 5 a test run today and it runs good.
-(Even though I have that crazy early Set-Up Steering Problem.....(it won`t go straight);. . . . .but I always fix it after a few runs.)
Over all; it was running really good. It should be totally good when I fix the steering problem.

Take Care.

Um... I don't think you belong to this thread. Make the Evo 5 win in the nats and the worlds first before judging which car is better. Because the Pro4 had been proven so many times in championships just in case you don't know.
